The Rules for Mafia

The rules of the game aren’t like he remembered.

“And if you have the Prince of Rings,” says Jack, who’s teaching the new people, “that means you’re the Castellan.  If the Infiltrator points at the Castellan during the night round, he has to surrender his Fate Card.”

“Wait,” says Pete.  “Wait.  So, how do I know if I’m in the Mafia?”

Jack gives him a look that could burn a hole in paper and sighs.  “If your card has writing in it when viewed in a mirror.”

“Oh,” says Pete, furrowing.  “I thought the red cards, maybe.”

Jack ignores him.
